Health and Care in Later Life Collection
With the number of people aged over 60 tripling since 1950, and the combined senior and geriatric population projected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050, the world's ageing population is creating many new challenges. This collection of articles explores some of these challenges. The collection features research into the health and quality of life of older people and examines the individuals and institutions who are caring for them.
To mark International day of Older Persons and the start of the UN’s Decade of healthy ageing we have made this collection free to read until 31 October.
The Health and Care in Later Life Collection features research from:
